KAKI KING: THE NECK IS A BRIDGE TO THE BODY

In conjunction with Fermata

SAT MAY 10 / TWO SHOWS: 7:30 + 9:30PM
$18 IN ADVANCE / $22 DAY OF
Dome Theatre

Guitar-goddess Kaki King and visual designers Glowing Pictures put their creative brains together during a residency at BRIC House in Brooklyn to create The Neck is a Bridge to the Body, an hour-long immersive audio-visual performance where the guitar itself is being used as a projection screen. Designed to turn every preconceived idea of what the guitar is on its head, King's musical prowess and the stylings of Glowing Pictures will tell a new story of creation where music is the origin of all things. Expect mesmerizing guitar techniques, mind-altering projections, and consciousness-lifting ideas.

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” 
Kaki King is a true iconoclast, a visionary musician/artist whose singular work rightly stands out amongst the easily formatted.  Over her decade-long career thus far, the Brooklyn-based guitarist/composer has recorded five diverse and distinctive LPs, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks (spanning Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s Into The Wild to scoring—and appearing in as guitar-playing hand double—the acclaimed 2007 drama, August Rush), and played to ever-growing audiences on innumerable world tours. King has expanded and reconceived the role of the solo instrumental artist, constantly kicking at the boundaries of what’s expected.

Glowing Pictures 
was founded in 2004 by V Owen Bush & Benton-C Bainbridge. They work on large and small projects with teams of creatives and consultants that range from one to 150 people. They co-create with designers, artists, scientists, engineers, architects, performing artists, producers and storytellers to create unique and unforgettable works.
